Zachary Richard - Last KissAlthough born in Louisiana, Zachary has spent much of his career in Quebec, where his infectious blend of his native Cajun and zydeco music with rock ’n’ roll has earned him numerous awards and devoted fans. On this, his first English language album in 15 years, Zachary proves he has a poet’s way with words on “Just Ain’t Enough” and the gospel-inflected “The Levee Broke,” about Hurricane Katrina’s devastation. He also duets with Céline Dion on a heartfelt rendition of Robbie Robertson’s classic “Acadian Driftwood.”
